Flashback Friday: 11-Year-Old Selena Gomez Auditions For ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’

By  | 

Selena Gomez might be one of Hollywood's biggest stars nowadays, but 10 years ago, she was just a young actress trying to get a big part. For the latest Flashback Friday, we thought it would be cute to share this video of the "Come and Get It Singer" auditioning for the part of Alex Russo on a little Disney Channel show called Wizards of Waverly Place.

As you probably know, that's the role that launched her into stardom, and lead her where she is today. In the video, we see an 11-year-old Selena as she not only runs lines, but talks a little bit about herself as well. For instance, the casting director asks her what she likes to do when she's not acting. Selena's reply? "Hang out with my friends!" We bet not much as changed (and we mean that in a good way.)

She's also asked what she wants to do when she graduates high school, and says that she wants to act AND sing. That worked out pretty well for her, didn't it? For all that and much more, watch the video above!

What do you think of this Selena flashback? Sound off in the comments!
